BBC NEWS COVERAGE OF TERRORISM IN ISRAEL – JUNE 2022

The Israel Security Agency’s report on terror attacks (Hebrew) during June 2022 shows that throughout the month a total of 189 incidents took place: 147 in Judea & Samaria, 41 in Jerusalem and inside the ‘green line’ and one in the Gaza Strip sector.

In Judea & Samaria, Jerusalem and inside the ‘green line’ the agency recorded 117 attacks with petrol bombs, 42 attacks using pipe bombs, eleven shooting attacks, sixteen arson attacks and two stabbing attacks. One rocket attack was recorded in the Gaza Strip sector.

Three people were wounded during June.

Visitors to the BBC News website saw no reporting on the June 18th rocket attack directed at the southern city of Ashkelon which was intercepted by the Iron Dome missile defence system.

A shooting attack at Joseph’s Tomb, near Schem, on June 30th in which two civilians and a member of the security forces were injured was likewise ignored by the BBC, as were all the other incidents throughout June.

In the first half of 2022 the BBC News website reported just 1% of the terror attacks against Israelis which actually took place and 89% of the resulting fatalities.
